Welcome Christmas Crafters! It is the first day of a brand new month and time for our latest link up. I hope that you and your families are staying well!
While it still may be five months away, Christmas is getting closer! Whether you are finally looking to get a start on your Christmas and other December Holiday card pile or you already have a number of cards completed, we'd love to have you join us and add your cards to our Link Up for a chance to win some goodies!
Right now, it is time to get down to the business of our latest challenge. Here is what you need to know...
WARM WINTER WEAR
If you want the chance to win this month's featured paper pack, be sure that your card features WARM CLOTHING suitable for winter, either on its own, or being worn by a human or animal.
Keep in mind though, that you don't need to follow the twist to link up your cards and earn a free paper each month or for a chance to win TWO images from this month's sponsor, All Dressed Up Stamps. You simply need to follow the twist if you'd like a chance to win this month's featured digital paper pack, KNITTED TEXTURES 1 (you can see a preview for this set by clicking HERE).
Hi, my name’s Wendy, founder of All Dressed Up. I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children (my inspiration behind the characters) - in particular, my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with trends and all things digital. Day to day, I work as a textile designer working traditionally within childrenswear, fashion and interiors. Although my work is mostly digital, my work process remains hand-drawn which I hope comes across in my artwork.
All Dressed Up was created in 2013 as a place to share my digital stamps which back then was a whole new challenge for me. Since, I’ve been lucky to have discovered a whole creative community and welcomed the All Dressed Up design team who have been amazing to work with. Through our online community and Instagram, the team keep me on my toes to keep on drawing, creating and inspiring. My favourite thing is seeing how my characters are continually given brand new personalities!
On our Facebook and Instagram page we host regular tutorials, challenges (and freebies!) and is the real heart of our community. The stamps are available from the All Dressed Up Etsy shop which is continually updated on a monthly basis with lots of limited edition and seasonal stamps available in particular.
The All Dressed Up community is a friendly bunch (if I do say so myself!) and we would love for you to get involved, see your work and for you to share your stamping tips too! Do get in contact and be sure to visit our Facebook and Instagram pages to see what we’re creating at the moment.

So what are you waiting for? It is time to link up your Christmas and other holiday cards for August!
Please remember that this is a CARDS ONLY link up. While we've had some lovely tag entries, ornaments and other creative projects in the past, we've sadly had to disqualify them.

If everything goes according to plan, our winner announcement for Challenge #79 will be posted between the 10th and the 23rd.
